Since membership fees are defined in the JSPA, if we wish to change them this is our opportunity.

Although our fees are low compared to other standards organizations we get significant resistance to paying them.

Some commercial organizations avoid paying fees by encouraging their employees to join as individuals.

Possible changes:

  • A lower rate for small commercial entities.
  • Lowering or eliminating the fees for non-profits.

Whatever we do, we should move the fee-structure language from the JSPA to the Process Document so we can more easily fine-tune it in the future.

Comment by pcurran [ 01/Apr/15 ]

JSR 364 will publicly commit to "no fees". Therefore we should simply remove any mention of fees from the JSPA.
